Northern Lights
Lebanon Hanover Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Perhaps an ideal way of life
leads to an ideal way of death
It would be good to be you
but I'd rather be dead
Perhaps a fashionable way of life
leads to a fashionable way of death
but to be in love is not in fashion anymore
Let's move somewhere
near the northern skies
and watch the northern lights
and watch the northern lights
come, come into my arms
I want you in my arms
I want you in my arms
In a way it's just not very nice
to be around people with fashionable minds
perhaps It's futile to speak when everyone is online
alone with a couple hundreds of friends
and a couple hundreds of pills
so please leave with me
near the northern skies
and watch the northern lights
and watch the northern lights
come, come into my arms
I want you in my arms
I want you in my arms
arms, come into my arms




I want you in my arms
I want you in my arms

The music, the video as well as the band are very touching. It's a delight to see that there's still real artists out there that are not afraid to show themselves to the World and give everything to their craft.
Thank you very much for everything you do.
